Here's What You Need To Do After Your Engagement



1. TAKE THOSE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS 

These should be taken 1-2 months after your engagement and before you get caught up with your wedding plans. Your photos should be a reflection of both your styles and personalities. Make sure the photographer you hire to take your photos you are able to use for your wedding day. So, make sure you check out their packages and ask about their pricing before moving forward. Be creative, have fun while you are at it. Here are a few ideas to think about:

- Place where you first met (location)
- Follow your wedding theme
- Get comfortable
- Your fave game or sport
- Fairytale photos (fave)


2. HAVE THE “MONEY TALK”

Money is one of the top areas of disagreement in a marriage. It is important that spouses-to-be have a candid discussion about money and bill payment before they walk down the aisle. This assures you’re both on the same page in the planning process and understand the role money plays in your marriage.

3. INSURE THE RINGS

Wedding rings are one of the only pieces of jewelry you will wear every single day, but insuring your rings is one of the things you may forget for your wedding. This process will ensure that you can have your rings replaced or get reimbursed, depending on the plan you choose. This will prove beneficial in case there is damage to the ring, or if it is lost or stolen, giving your peace of mind.

4. START PAYING DOWN OR PAYING OFF EXISTING BILLS

While you’re wedding planning, both the bride and the groom should be working to pay down their individual bills. Why? Because, in most cases, you will be financially attached after you’re married. Get onto a payment plan or call the company you owe to work out potential plans.

5. SET A WEDDING BUDGET

One of the things to do when planning your wedding is to go ahead and set a budget. According to recent studies, the average wedding can cost up to $33,000. That price tag is usually way out of budget for most brides and grooms.

Take a look at your finances so you can see what budget will be most feasible for your wedding. Use our Wedding cost estimator to set your wedding budget.

6. PUT ASIDE MONEY FOR YOUR WEDDING

After you set a wedding budget, you’ll need to start saving in order to reach that goal. Most experts suggest that both the bride and groom or whoever will be paying for the wedding to set aside 20 percent of their income in an interest-bearing account.

This will remove the funds from your account so you won’t be using them and they will be set aside to pay for your wedding!

7. SET A DATE

Possibly one of the most important aspects of wedding planning is setting the date for your big day. In fact, your budget and setting aside money for your wedding may be contingent on your date. The farther out your date, the more time you’ll have. The closer your date, the more you will need to set aside to pay for your wedding.

  3. Great tips! Having a "to-do-list" is always better than trying to figure out what to do in the midst of all the stress that wedding planning inevitably brings.
